  2. The Scottish Government’s stewardship of the NHS has come under fire after new figures revealed a 420 per cent rise in the number of outpatients waiting more than a year for treatment.

    1100 patients wait over a year for NHS treatment in Scotland

    The figure rose to 77 in 2012, leaping to 365 in 2013 before easing to 179 in 2014. In 2015 an upward trend was observed once more with 228 waiting more than a year before more than quadrupling to 1,186 last year.

    The 1,186 total included 16 patients waiting more than two years. The specialisms with the most patients waiting more than a year were urology with 303, trauma and orthopaedic surgery (277) and endocrinology and diabetes (176). They were followed by: gastroenterology (170); immunology (64); ear, nose and throat (50); ophthalmology (50); dermatology (18) and gynaecology (11).

    The longest wait was for ear, nose and throat treatment with one patient waiting 234 weeks – well over four years.
  3. And why, exactly, will Trump "likely" be impeached?
  4. Unless I'm much mistaken, it seems that "evidence" admittedly as yet untested, seems to be piling up against both he and his family.
    I'll stick to what I said...and I'll take it back if he if still in power a year from now.
    As far as I can see, Watergate has not got a look in for comparison, and those who want rid are just gaining momentum.

  5. The Democrats insist he is illegally in charge or such undeniable lip twitching on another thread
  6. No, spill it, bearing in mind that POTUS can only be impeached for offences committed WHILST IN OFFICE.

    So, once more, why would Trump be "likely to be impeached".
  7. The Democrats have been proven to make more crap up, especially when it comes to their own Presidential Candidate election. Yet they still deny electoral fraud, even after such a clear case of electoral fraud, exists.
  8. Unfortunately, his replacement may not be all that better and in a different way. The devil you know may be a good starting point in Trump's case.
  9. I❤️Chelsea for the next democratic candidate
  10. Are they not owned by a Russian too?

  12. Look, if Watergate was 9 on the scale, even now some pundits in the USA reckon the Ivan Connection is sitting at 6/7..and it's not really started.
    Have a look:
    And yes, it's only one take from a few out there.
    Will Trump be impeached – or is it just a liberal fantasy?

    So again, in my opinion, if the Ivan Connection gets out of first gear, Trump as you well know could avoid impeachment by resigning as Nixon did. But, I think he is too arrogant for watch this space. That's all I'm saying.
  13. I'll buy that.
